Aircraft History
Built by Mitsubishi assembled on January 14, 1942. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN).

Wartime History
Crashed near Boera to the west of Port Moresby. This crash site was surveyed by Allied intelligence on July 11, 1942 and assessed as site 'AD 10'.

Wreckage
The crash site of this Zero is known to local villagers, but was scrapped.

Justin Taylan searched this area in 2006:
"Locals knew of an aircraft crash in this area, but reported it was removed or scrapped, or this could be P-400 Airacobra AP378 in this same area. Villagers remember the site of the crash, but time did not allow for a survey of that location for any remaining evidence."
